KINSKI “GUEST GIRL VOCALIST” (MUSIC VIDEO)
Released just ahead of the band’s eighth (or nineth?) record, ‘Accustomed To Your Face,’ the video for Kinski’s “Guest Girl Vocalist” captures the band in their raw, natural state on stage thanks to footage shot by Matt Howl, and the quick edits and post-production trickery that I brought to the table.
HORSE FEATHERS “FALL TOUR 2018” (TRAILER)
After touring the U.S. throughout the spring and summer of 2018, Horse Feathers returned to Oregon to play a handful of shows with their Astoria compatriots Blind Pilot. I caught up with the band at their Aladdin Theatre show in Portland, and shot their full show with my phone, and turned the footage into the tour trailer you see above.
OXFIST “THE GHOST OF GUS GRISSOM” (MUSIC VIDEO)
The music video for “The Ghost of Gus Grissom” speaks to the former astronaut’s final hours, alongside his fellow Apollo I space crew. Given the fact that the song was originally described as a “funeral dirge for cyborgs,” it made sense to pay homage to someone in the early days of the space program, especially one who was so mechanically adept.
ELLIOTT SMITH “BOTTLE UP AND EXPLODE (ALTERNATE VERSION)” (LYRIC VIDEO)
Using some older footage that I shot during a July 4th celebration, I created this lyric video for Elliott Smith’s “Bottle Up and Explode (Alternate Version)” that was released as part of the ‘Either/Or : Expanded Edition’ album released in 2017.
MIDWAY IN WAKE “YOUR MAJESTY” (LYRIC VIDEO)
Using footage from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, chosen by Greg Reynaud (aka Midway In Wake), I created this lyric video for the song “Your Majesty,” which follows the lyrical themes of the track, which is about a soldier who’s been dispatched to a catastrophe to provide information about what took place.
SECOND LETTER “RUINS” (LYRIC VIDEO)
The video for Second Letter’s “Ruins” plays off the lyrical content both literally and figuratively through out its duration. When taken literally, the song could be construed as a post-breakup missive, but when taken in context with the band’s other work, you realize that its more of a anti-capitalism statement.
ART OF BALLISTICS “TAKE IT ON FAITH” (MUSIC VIDEO)
Given “Take It On Faith”‘s heavy use of NASA samples, and the EP’s overall “conspiracy” theme, it made sense to create a montage of vintage sci-fi and official state documentation that blurs the lines between what is real — and what has yet to be.
HARI KONDABOLU “BOYS WILL BE BOYS” (LIVE CLIP)
This clip was taken from the live recording of Hari Kondabolu’s second album, ‘Mainstream American Comic,’ at Mississippi Studios in Portland, OR. The bit’s focal point is toxic masculinity, and what can, or should be assumed when people say “Boys Will Be Boys.”
SLINT “SPIDERLAND IN 2.5D” (ANIMATION)
In addition to designing the cinema poster for ‘Breadcrumb Trail,’ Lance Bangs’ documentary film about the popular Louisville band ‘Slint,’ I also created this short 2.5D interpretation of the band’s hallmark album, “Spiderland.”
CAMERON ESPOSITO “GUACAMOLE” (LIVE CLIP)
In this piece from “Same Sex Symbol,” Cameron Esposito explains the virtues of living in a place with a diverse, and in some cases completely divergent, mode of thought. Call is a fresh take on tomato tomatoe / potato potatoe, or don’t.
